Keeping Track of Every Employee Just Got Easier on FreshBooks

Easily keep track of basic Team Member information by creating a Team Member Profile.

working with your team

Whether you have a network of contractors or a team of employees, the more people you work with, the more difficult it becomes to keep all their information in one place.

If you run a small media agency, for example, you might have remote employees or vendors in different time zones, all working on different projects. And at some point, you may just want to check for someone’s email or phone number – but can’t find it in endless email chains. In short: It’s exhausting.

To help, FreshBooks allows you to create Team Member Profiles – which make it easy to create a basic employee record in just a few clicks.
